Stocks & Commodities V. 25:3 (86): Websites For Traders: alphatrends.blogspot.com by Jayanthi Gopalakrishnan
One of the blogs I read on a regular basis, equityinvestmentideas.blogspot.com, had a posting where author Yaser Anwar listed all the blogs and tools that he considered his favorites. In the technical analysis section within that list, one that was mentioned was Alpha Trends, mainly because of its excellent video posts. Curious because I’d never visited
a technical analysis video blog, I clicked on it. Sure enough, Brian Shannon from MarketWise had several video posts of technical charts on his blog,
Consider it the You Tube of technical analysis. Shannon discusses charts and draws trendlines, points out various scenarios on the charts, literally walks you through several charts, and gives you a condensed version of what he sees in these charts. You essentially get one-on-one tutoring with him. Some days he will discuss trading ideas; sometimes he gives a general review of the stock market, and other times he will discuss the stock of the day on Wallstrip, another blog (the review of which we will save for another issue).
